From Bach to today’s popular film scores, local Illinois orchestras play it all. If you’d like to relax with some music, these groups also provide plenty of virtual fun. Here are a few of the orchestras you can discover from the comfort of our apartments in Oswego.
Elgin Symphony Orchestra
Since its founding in 1950, the Elgin Symphony has grown to become one of the country’s preeminent orchestras. It’s known for its innovative programming, artistic excellence, and community outreach initiatives. From flutists to cellists and everything in between, the musicians boast years of experience and believe that music has the power to enrich society. The orchestra offers performance highlights on YouTube, including the Elgar Cello Concerto.
Peoria Symphony Orchestra
Currently in its 123rd season, the Peoria Symphony is a major part of the cultural life of central Illinois. The orchestra is currently entertaining and inspiring through its new PSO at Home series where can watch both live and past performances. Don’t miss Bach and Britten with Alex Liedtke. A Chicago-native, Alex is an oboist who earned a Masters of Music from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. During the performance, you’ll hear Partita in B Minor, The English Night Owl, and more.
For nearly thirty years, the Illinois Symphony Orchestra has promoted the transformative and universal power of live music. It was recently called one of the “top eight things you should do in Illinois” by Only in Your State. The orchestra is offering the exciting Sundays at Six Recital Series where the musicians perform from home. While you’re waiting for the next series to start on September 21st, you can watch past performances on YouTube.
